Gift aid and standing orders

Please consider joining the gift aid scheme and also setting up a standing order in favour of Christ the King. If you are a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid is a wonderful way to make your offertory donation more valuable to Christ the King. Standing order forms make it even easier to make a regular contribution to the parish.

Coronavirus, and living our faith, a message from the parish’s SVP Conference

I want to help – what can I do?

First and foremost, keep your prayers going. We all need them. Then :

1. Reach out to our neighbours and fellow parishioners Call or put a note through their door, with your contact details, offering to help. Join local efforts, like local Residents’ Associations, or the systems being recommended by each of our local MPs. Let us know of other practical steps that we can publicise.

2. Food banks. Local food banks have been running short. Some supermarkets have designated places to donate, or you can give an online donation or send an online order direct to the food bank, even if it has to wait a week.

3. Volunteer to be a Phone twin Can you sign up to call a named parishioner once a day, partly as a safety check but also to relieve the sheer boredom?

4.Identifying people without internet access, and offering to help get them online A small but significant minority of parishioners, mostly over 80, are not online. If they decide it would be a good idea to take the plunge, can you help to get them up and going?

5. Let us know if you have any skills to offer We will use the parish Facebook site to make specific requests. Please look at it, and volunteer where you can.

I need help – what can I do?

Follow Government advice, but if you need practical help, with shopping or anything else, get in touch. If you just want to talk through what is on your mind, please call.

1. Phone or text us on 07946 712 714.

2. Use the parish Facebook site – it is a ‘closed’ group so please ask to join if you are on Facebook ‘Parishioners & Friends of Christ the King, Wimbledon Park’. It is a great way to keep in touch – particularly in these difficult times!

Just leave a message and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

We in the SVP send you our prayers and hope to see you again soon.

The God Who Speaks

The coming year will be one of celebrating, living and sharing God's word, through a range of events, activities and resources.

www.cbcew.org.uk/home/events/the-god-who-speaks/.

From 30 Sept 2019 to 31 Dec 2020 The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England & Wales has designated 2020 as ‘The God who Speaks’ – A year of the word to celebrate the 10th anniversary of ‘Verbum Domini’ – Pope Benedict’s Apostolic Exhortation, ‘The Word of the Lord’ – and the 1,600th anniversary of the death of St Jerome, who translated the Bible into Latin.
The Year will be one of celebrating, living and sharing God’s word, through a range of events, activities and resources. We are invited to listen afresh to the word of God as did Our Blessed Lady at the Annunciation, to encounter anew the presence of that word, and to proclaim it afresh in the Church and the World.
For further information see: www.cbcew.org.uk/home/events/the-god-who-speaks/.
